About Snowden: I speak as an American Resident and as a Brazilian Citizen.

Today, I feel an orphan.

Today, I am ashamed to be an American resident as well as a Brazilian citizen.

Today, Brazil does not represent me.

Today, my nation has decided to ignore the fact that Edward Snowden is asking for political exile.

Today, my nation is ignoring that Snowden is one of the most important symbols of democracy.

Today, my nation is ignoring that we Brazilians have been protesting for democracy.

Today, only Russia deserves some respect for keeping Snowden safe in the Moscow Airport for 10 days.

Today, the family and friends of Edward Snowden are still suffering.

Today, we are again failing to fight for democracy.

Today, the US government is still calling Edward Snowden as well as Bradley Manning as traitors.

Today, the traitor is obviously the US government together with my country.

Today, I am ashamed to be an American resident as well as a Brazilian citizen.

Today, no nation represents me.
